Texas Tech Saturday Morning Notes - Kipyego Is Amazing Edition

Double-T Nation News:

We're down to baseball and spring football for Texas Tech. Since I'll have more time to write about stuff, I'm curious what you guys would like to see discussed. Of course, you can always write a diary but if you like or dislike something, feel free to drop me an email or leave a comment.

Texas Tech Track:

Sally Kipyego is amazing. Kipyego won her 6th NCAA title, running the 5,000 meters 23 seconds faster than her closes opponent at 15:31.91. Congrats to Sally and we're pulling for you today. Also competing today is Lyle Leong's at the high jump, so I'll make sure and report back tomorrow with today's results.

NCAA Conference Tournaments:

I'm sure you've already heard the news about the tornado hitting the top of the Georgia Dome and I thought the constant updating from Rocky Top Talk and A Sea Of Blue were incredibly informative and scary all at the same time.

Make sure and check out all of the great Big 12 blogs covering their respective teams:

Heart breaker. The Red Raiders lose in 12 innings to the Aggies, 6-5, with a Dane Carter two-out home run in the bottom of the 12th inning. AJ Ramos pitched 4.2 innings, giving up 6 hits, 5 runs, 3 earned, walking EIGHT, and striking out 7. The pen was spectacular except for the 12 inning. Pitchers Brian Cloud (7 strikeouts in 3 innings), James Leverton, Owen Brolsma, Sam Janca, Robert Kilcrease an Russ Fornea held the Aggies to 4 hits 1 run, 13 strikeouts and 3 walks for 7 strong innings. At the plate, Joey Kenworthy went 2-5 with 2 RBI and Jason Seefeld went 2-6 with 1 RBI.

LAJ's George Watson files his game story and notes that Coach Hays and the team isn't down. Here's Coach Hays:

"We battled hard and played hard and did all the things you need for a club to do," Hays said. "We just never got the big hit. Late in the game we had a lot of opportunities, and we had to play so hard because they got a lot of leadoff baserunners on. We just kept the pressure on ourselves all the time but we fought and battled."

Here's Jason Seefeld:

"It was a tough game, but you can't put too much on the results of that game," said senior infielder Jason Seefeld, whose RBI-double keyed a three-run rally in the seventh that tied the game at 5. "We got after it, we battled and we played hard. That's about all we could do.

"It's one game and it's out of the way. We've got two more and we can still take the series. I think everybody knows we're on the same page so we'll just come back and play hard again."
